Event description

Description

This one day class will complement any other teachers’ work. Contact Christine if you have any concerns.

Overview
A relaxing day in the artist’s studio, concentrating exploring paper for watercolour.
This stand-alone class gives artists a chance to really understand the paper part of making a watercolour.

We explore
- how paper is made
- the different papers on the market
- which papers suit which methods of painting
- how to choose the best paper for you
- how to find the nap, and fold paper properly
- the four ways to tear paper
- the choices and implications of using non-art paper
- conservation and storage of works on paper

Activities will include
- teacher demonstration, discussion
- painting/paper exercises.
- follow-up activities to do at home
- learning experiences are collated into a useful artist-made resource work-book called "The Little Red Book of Watercolour"

Class numbers
Maximum of ten students only.

Suitable for:

- Any watercolour painter. Beginner, emerging or experienced. Experienced watercolourists will be encouraged to extend their understanding.

The Little Red Book of Watercolour
Christine has developed a work book called "The Little Red Book of Watercolour". It describes everything that Christine has learnt about watercolour in her 30 + years with this media. Each workshop in this series explores a different element of watercolour . Topics include Mixing colour, paper, brushes and other tools, creating the illusion of distance, painting on site, painting trees etc. Each class can be taken independantly, there is no pre-requisite, and the information complements any other teachers’ work.

Children?
This class suits adults. If there is enough interest Christine will organise a teenage or children's class, though there are a number of children's art classes in Lismore.

Getting to the workshop, parking.
The workshop is being held at Christine's studio in East Lismore. When you have enrolled we'll send you a mudmap with directions and parking information.
